Yoonji is a first-year graduate student in the SNAP lab. She graduated from Wellesley College in 2018 with a B.A. in Neuroscience, and then worked as a research technician in Dr. Susan Whitfield-Gabrieli’s lab at Northeastern University on Boston Adolescence Neuroimaging on Depression and Anxiety (BANDA) study and real-time fMRI neurofeedback intervention for schizophrenia patients with auditory hallucinations.
In the SNAP lab, Yoonji is interested in examining the impacts of early adversity on brain development, neural mechanisms underlying resilience to environmental stress, and brain biomarkers for predicting the onset and the course of depression.
